Math for Healthcare Professionals (Paperback)

21st April 2009

Math for Health Care Professionals is a comprehensive resource that is equally effective in the learning environment or for self-study. It is foundational and assumes no prior knowledge of mathematics or health care but merges the two topics into the capstone of a complete learning package.

Math For Healthcare

Designed with clearly defined objectives that allow the user to select the competencies that the group or individual needs, each objective is clearly stated then explained within the book and accompanied by a significant number of practice problems.

Critical thinking skills, rather than rote memorization of formulas, are emphasized. By using pretests printed at the beginning of each chapter each users work can be assessed to determine areas of weakness and helps develop skills within these weak areas.

In the Math in the Real World feature, health care professionals relate to readers, in their own words, the importance of math in the health care professions. While the fundamentals of mathematics are foundational to this book, their application to health care is emphasized. Drug dosages, intake and output, weights and measures, temperatures, IV drip rates, and conversions are emphasized and illustrations of syringes, prescriptions, medication labels, IV bags, and I and O charts allow the reader to practice real-life health care skills requiring mathematics.
